IceHogs Sign Bryn Chyzyk

On Thursday, the Rockford IceHogs reportedly agreed on an AHL contract with former North Dakota forward Bryn Chyzyk.

Chyzyk, 23, was an assistant captain on a North Dakota team that featured Blackhawks draft picks Luke Johnson and Nick Schmaltz, both of whom have signed with the organization. Listed at 6-0 and 180 pounds, the left-handed shooting Chyzyk posted 12 goals and 10 assists in 42 games in his fourth collegiate season. He finished the season tied for the UND lead with two short-handed goals.

  1. Like the move. So Luke Johnson, Chyzyk and Nick Mattson at Rockford. Lots of quality North Dakota guys. Should ease their transition as they all know each other and played together. Also if Schmaltz struggles with the big club and gets sent to Rockford, he will be among friends.

  2. Schmaltz will play with those other kids for sure because he will go to Rockford for many games ….but i dont think Kempny will be playing for the Hogs long time …he will be a Hawks most of the year …

  3. I hear he is one of the cool kids…,.stocking up on the Rock,.,,the boys should be jelling.
    Calder Cup Champs,.,.,.,watch out sugar cause here we come.,.,.,Now who,s playing left wing with Toews????????////

  4. @AS

    And ex-Montreal Canadian and HOFer Yvan Cournoyer could sell a couple of vowels and nobody would even notice.

    Man, that guy really feasted on the Blackhawks in the day. Seems like at least 1/2 of bis 428 goals and 68 GWG were against us. 8 time Cup winner!

  5. I remember Cournoyer, a left-handed shot, on a breakaway where he initially got the puck around the blue line on his backhand but rather than staying on it, changed hands so he went in on the goalie as a right-handed shot on his forehand and scored. Fabulous player.

  6. Tic tac ,,, tic tac …9 days
    Me i think he will not sign with the Hawks ……but hope he will IFF He his that good….i have dought about Vesey …..not Sure …..i think we have now …15-20% chance to land him …let see

  7. You don’t sign anyone until after the Vesey situation. You have time with Fortin if you’re interested. A couple scrimmage games and he’s a must sign…after being passed over in 2 drafts.
